Caught Napping Our readers might maintain that East had far from a simple defensive play to make in today’s hand. Nev ertheless, as this particular East is considered one of the country's leading players, we feel that he should have come forth with the right defense. The fact that he failed serves to show that we are all fallible. Place yourself in East’s position and determine what you would have done. South dealer. Both sides vulnerable.

He was right, for on any other lead the contract would have been a lay down. South won the spade queen with his king and played his two top trumps; noting the bad break, he attacked clubs, hoping that East had as many as two of the suit. But East trumped the second round, laid down the diamond ace, then returned his one remaining spade. South won with dummy’s ace, ruffed a diamond, then put East in with the high trump. And, since East had no more spades, South trumped the diamond return, then discard ed his losing spade on dummy’s fourth club. Do you see East's mistake? After j ruffing the second club, East should j have returned a spade, knocking out ! dummy's ace. Then if South played a third club <a poor playi East would ruff, and the dummy would be “dead." If South chose to put East in with his high trump. East could and should underlead the ; diamond ace in the hope that West I held the king. West would win and ; cash the setting trick in spades. * „* * * Yesterday you were Theodore | Lightner's partner. Both sides were vulnerable and you held: * K54 (7 Q942 0 AJ954 *3 The bidding: ' You.

Uncle Ray's Corner A reader haa asked me whether the Great comet of 1882 was the largest ever seen. The 1882 comet ranks as one of the largest ever seen. It had a far larger core, or nucleus, than Halley’s comet. Only a few eomets In all history have made such a sight In the sky, so far as we can Judge by the reports of people living at the time. Because It appeared In the latter part of the past century, astrono mers were better able to study this comet than some of the ancient ones. One thing they learned was that the nucleus of the 1882 comet was 1,800 miles In diameter. This compares with 500 miles for the qucleus of Halley’s comet. Let us be sure to note that the nucleus of a comet Is only the bright central part of the head. The whole head Includes sprays of gas and dust which come from the nucleus. Counting all of It, the head may reach enormous size. The head of an average comet Is about 80,000 miles wide. In June 1910, the head of Halley’s comet was 320,000 miles wide. That was a big head, but it did not equal some other comets. The Great comet of 1811, for example, had a head which was larger than the sun! Where there is a large head there also Is a long tail. Sometimes the tail of a comet is well over 100,000, 000 miles long. Comet heads and tails are made of material which, In general, Is of very light weight. There are some solid objects in the head but the greater part is made of gas and dust. It Is believed that a very large comet has less than a mil lionth part as much weight as the earth. “Having reached my 76th year," writes Robert J. Bailey, “I was one of the fortunate persons who sow the Great comet of 1882, a sight never to be forgotten. Its wide, glowing tail was rose-tinted. Will this comet ever be seen again?" The 1882 comet is expected to re turn, but not for many hundreds of years. Meanwhile other fine comets are likely to come into public view. I have said before, it seems to me almost time for a good surprise in the sky. It has been almost 34 years since Halley's comet last ap peared. That one will not come again until 1985 or 1986. but some other beautiful comet ought to show itself during the next few years. Perhaps people in this generation will see something to equal the Great comet of 1882. Officer Dreams of Fire, Puts In Call for Aid By the Associated Prete. ASTORIA. Oreg. — The alarm clanged.
